Laser hair removal?

Recommended Posts

Thanks for all the responses ladies.

 

I think I am willing to try it on my underarms.

Even if it only works for a while... it is better than waxing and having a 5 o'clock shadow soon after shaving :)

Yeah!! it's definitely worth it! I have to shave my underarms now but I don't have a shadow at all.. and before I stopped going I could be an entire month without shaving and you couldn't notice the hair 'cause it was so thin..

My bikini is still great, I just have to shave some areas but it always looks neat..

This is the ones I remember depilité, softskin, neoskin, you may want to ask 'cause maybe it's because we're in the border.. but I understood you can use it everywhere..

the one I go to is just in Mexico it's called c-laser

Different laser machines = different prices ! You should shop around and always ask which type of machine they use and how long they have been doing it !

 

Laser hair removal is more and more popular because it is less expensive than 10 years ago ! My friend went to a beauty salon and they burned her... in the private area. You can't always feel it at the moment, but the next morning, she was red + in pain...she felt as if someone put a hot iron on you know where area ! I told her that she should of went to my specialist even if she is more expensive ! I have to tell you that she regrets it and finally took my advice !

 

The genital areas should take between 6 and 10 sessions depending on how much you have down there and how thick is the hair. The thinner it is , the quicker it will totally dissapear ! But I have to tell you that it took 12 sessions for my arms pits since it is an area that you shave more often, the hair is thicker.

 

For all the girls who usually use wax, it should take less sessions, for those who shave, it will talke longer (more hair + thicker + grow faster)

 

Also, it doesn't 100% go, once in a while you will have a few popping out ! But it doesn't matter since the majority is gone and no more red bumps !

 

A little tip, once you have it done once, you should notice that the hair will fall off after about 10 days (so don't shave if you want to notice it!). Take note of the place that the hair did not fall by itself and tell the person you are dealing with. That way, she might put more light (laser) on those areas. And by the way, when you start the laser treatments (about every 6 to 8 weeks X 7 to 12 sessions) you cannot wax just shave ! But you will notice after a few session that the hair takes longer to grow...that is why you feel it worked during the 1st session (not quite true, it just takes longer to grow since the root is weaker).

 

2 weeks prior to your next session, you shouldn't take any sun without covering the area or putting on a good sun blocker cream) otherwise, the laser will burn you. You should of seen my legs last summer... since I always put on a towel around my waist once I was out of the pool, I just looked awful ! ! 3/4 of my legs tanned and the rest white ! !

 

At the end, it's alot of money to have the bikini area + armpits but sooooooooooo worth it once it is done.

Actually I was told the opposite, the thinner your hair, the longer it takes to disappear, that's why my underarms and bikini hair took like 3 or 4 sessions to go away but my facial hair is still there ('cause it's too thin)..

The thing is the machine detects thick hair more easily than thin one.. that's why it goes away faster..

people who shave have thicker hair because it is stronger (the glands from the roots work more since you shave more...) When you wax, the hair is thinner be the glands do "less work". When the hair is pulled out by wax, it kinda gets a "shock" and take a while to reproduce a hair.

 

This is why so ma y people are confused about lasers !!! We all get different info !!!

 

I all care is that it woeked for me even after the last session which was 2.5 years ago ! I have dark skin and dark hair. I look tan even during Montreal winters!
